No place on earth can you see as many cathedrals and churches of historic proportion in such a small footprint. Charming shops and modern shopping strips line the streets. There is something for everyone here. Head outside the old town and visit Bom da Jesus. You will not be disappointed by this awesome site.

Great, sunny day for photos. Fascinating Gothic gargoyle additions. Just didn't have enough time to truly appreciate it.

Beautiful old se, with fascinating history. Holy week is fantastic here - the music, the decorations, the processions.

Key religious building and the inside exceeds a basic exterior. Look for story of Reynard the Fox. The organ is stunning and uplifting even before the music!
